Proposed increase in AIIMS faculty retirement age opposed

BS RAWAT
NEW DELHI: It is being felt that if the senior faculty get two more years of service and do not retire, how will the juniors get promotion to senior positions?

Resident Doctors Association (RDA) and senior faculty members of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) have joined hands against the institute’s move to increase the retirement age of  the faculty from 65 to 67 years.

In a letter to Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi, the RDA has said national interest should be addressed by creating more jobs for freshly trained young doctors rather than increasing the age of retirement to satisfy individual greatness.

Dr Vijay Gurjar, president of the association, said that if their demand is not met, they might take the legal route.

"The services of the retiring faculty should rather be utilized in developing the upcoming AIIMS-like institutions," he added.

"The initiation of this process is for favouring a few numbers of senior faculties who are going to retire soon," said Dr Gurjar.

On October 26, 2016, the governing and institute bodies of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) unanimously passed a resolution increasing the age of superannuation of the faculty from 65 yrs to 67 yrs. uniformly across the entire faculty.

The AIIMS authorities, however, said most faculty members were in favour of increasing the age of superannuation.

"Regarding the decision of Administration to increase the age of superannuation from 65 to 67 years, majority of faculty in general body expressed their strong opinion that age should be increased only with implementation of Rotating Headship for the respective department," said the statement from FAIIMS after holding a meeting on the issue.

The decision to increase the retirement age of the faculties at AIIMS was taken on October 21 in a meeting of the institute's Governing Body attended by the Health Minister J.P Nadda.
